Beyoncé has sent flowers and a sweet note to the University of South Carolina women's basketball team.

The Texas Hold 'Em singer congratulated the team, known as the South Carolina Gamecocks, on a successful season by sending them a stunning bouquet of flowers, custom merchandise and a sweet note.

Coach Dawn Staley showed off the gifts in a video on X on Wednesday 17 April.

"I'm gonna read you this card," Staley tells the camera, sitting next to the overflowing bouquet sent to her by the superstar.

"To Coach Staley and the entire South Carolina Gamecocks: Me and my family watched your games and cheered you on through the entire season. I'm so proud of you."

According to the coach, Beyoncé signed off the message with "All my love".

"That's Bey! Bey and her family!" cheered Staley.

"Yes, Mr Carter. Yes, Blue, you did your thing, Blue, Sir and Rumi. Bey, thank you. We appreciate you. We're honoured to wear your gear."

Staley also showed off one of the T-shirts the 32-time Grammy winner gifted the team, which read Always Been Country on the back.

"LOVE ON TOP!!" the Olympic Gold medallist captioned her thank-you video.
